Ascendant – Meaning and Info
Esoteric astrology has at its center the Soul, that is, the purpose we live through incarnation. He places great emphasis on one’s Subsign or Ascendant.
Traditionally, the sign in which our Ascendant is located shows our physical characteristics, the social mask we wear, and the way we project ourselves to the outside world.
In other words, the Ascendant is not only our role and the mask we wear in front of the world, but the purpose of our Soul peeks behind that mask.
The personality we have is a vehicle for the Soul’s plan, and the sign in which our Ascendant is located shows what that plan is.
According to Esoteric Astrology, the Sun represents the present, the Moon the past and the Ascendant the future, that is, the Path of the Soul.
The Ascendant shows the qualities we develop and want to develop and work on to find our true Path. The Ascendant embodies our qualities and beliefs and through it we experience various life experiences that require us to ascend, perfect and reach a higher level of consciousness.
The Sun sign in the natal chart will give us conscious goals that we will want to achieve to shine (see more about the Sun sign here), the Moon sign will show us unconscious needs for security, connection and dependence on the past (see more about the Moon sign here), and the Ascendant will give us life events and an environment in which we will have (un) opportunities to reconcile and achieve both the Sun’s goals and the Moon’s needs.
Through developing higher qualities of the sign of our Ascendant, inside and outside (in the world), we gradually strengthen our Sun and Moon and discover that we can work together using the Ascendant as a link.
For example, take a person who has the Sun in the sign of Libra and the Moon in the sign of Aries. The conscious and unconscious needs of that person will be the opposite. Consciously, the Sun in Libra wants equal relationships and puts partnership above its individuality.
Shines when in partnership. It’s not that such a person doesn’t want to be alone, but a partnership is simply preferable. On the other hand, there is an unconscious emotional need of the Moon in Aries to individualize itself through independent, self-contained action.
Partnership generally hinders his sense of freedom and seeks challenges that he can tackle on his own, away from others. These two opposing aspirations can be reconciled through the sign of the Ascendant.
Take for example that in this case the Ascendant is in the sign of Gemini. This person will reconcile their inner conflict between “I” (Moon in Aries) and “we” (Sun in Libra) through Gemini themes: lots of conversation and mental ideas on how to reconcile the need to be with a partner but also to have time for yourself.
Also, through the Ascendant Gemini a person can find a partner who shares the same communication skills and intellectual interests and with such a partner the Sun in Libra will find partner harmony and fulfillment, and the Moon in Aries will be able to communicate in Gemini its needs to be independent and to itself in the first place.
Uranus Sextile Ascendant – Synastry, Transit, Composite
A planet in a relationship with an ascending sign that most strongly influences the style of behavior in society and success in a career, from birth to old age is reflected in the appearance and ways of interacting with people.
Given that sextile is the most favorable aspect, the native will receive the brightest and most advantageous sides of both sides of the aspect, but when the ambiguous and unpredictable Uranus is involved in tandem, you can never be sure of the 100% positive influence of the king of impulsiveness and daring creativity.
The native seeks adventure and always chooses opposition to the mainstream in both politics and art. The secret dream is to lead a new wave that sweeps away old attitudes and beliefs.
At the same time, there is no aggression in him and he is not interested in the destruction of dissidents. It is simply important for him to dominate and receive an enthusiastic recognition of his uniqueness.
However, there will be plenty of enemies and threats along this path. Influence of the sextile Uranus – Ascendant on fate Since childhood, the owners of the aspect stand out from the crowd for their non-standard behavior, bright and sometimes odious choice of clothes, and complete disregard for authorities.
True, thanks to sextile, it arouses the sympathy of others and attracts people who are able to respect the courage of choosing to be different from everyone else, to support and redirect creative searches to favorable conditions: theater, fashion, and art and music studio, dancing.
It is important for the native to listen to intuition, and not calls to settle down, forgetting about the true vocation, then success will come despite the stereotypical ideas of society.
Originality and innovation are the two main keys to prosperity and happiness, especially if the Sun is in Aquarius, Libra, Gemini, Leo and Sagittarius.
But even if the daylight and Mars are in the signs of the earth, a person will never be boring and shy, he simply monetizes his exotic style and way of life.
Otherwise, skillful and patient communication to the impatient Aries is not a strong point, so the Gemini subsign will give the necessary balance.
The Ascendant, therefore, enables a kind of reconciliation of the needs of the Sun and the Moon in each of us, whether the Sun and the Moon are in a harmonious or tense relationship.
Through the Ascendant we have a channel for expressing the connected energies of the Sun and the Moon within us – our inner animus (male principle) and anime (female principle). Consciously and unconsciously, they can merge into a sacred union and express themselves through the Ascendant.
